Transform the front of your S-Type with this beautiful
Electro-Polished Stainless Steel Front Grille mesh insert
Condition: New. Quantity Available:1
IMPORTANT: This insert is for the S-Type model that received the minor face-lift in 2004. For further clarification see the text in red (below) to confirm that this is the correct mesh for your S-Type*
This mesh is premium quality woven stainless steel. For those with knowledge of stainless steel this is 316 grade, which is a very high quality grade stainless. This mesh is the same quality & thickness as Jaguar use for their own mesh grilles. This beautiful mesh will enhance & greatly improve your Jaguars appearance (thin poor quality mesh does the opposite and detracts from the cars appearance)
....This Woven Stainless steel insert has also been Electropolished.
Electropolishing is the ultimate treatment that can be given to stainless steel; it makes the stainless steel permanently bright & reflective. And makes the job of cleaning the stainless much easier. All prestige car manufactures apply the electropolishing process to their stainless grilles because of its fabulous & long lasting results. *see green text below for more details
It comes with full, easy to follow fitting instructions complete with numerous helpful fitting photographs.
This sale is for the mesh insert only (it is designed to fit behind your existing grille frame surround)
The mesh insert is pre-cut to the exact size. It is then pressed & formed to create the convexed shape that gives the grille its classic curved profile.
You need to remove the existing plastic fins as explained & shown in the supplied fitting instructions. The job takes little over an hour.
IMPORTANT: *This mesh insert is for the model that received the minor facelift in 2004; this model can be easily distinguished by its slightly smaller grille. If you look at the 3rd image shown, you can see that the vertical measurement from inside the grille frame below the badge to the inside of the grille frame at the bottom of the grille is approx 280mm. Also this model usually has a badge with the Jaguars face within a circular badge with the word JAGUAR at the bottom of the badge in small text.
(Whereas the pre-facelift model had a vertical measurement of approx. 300mm, so this mesh will not fit. And usually this earlier model does not have the ‘circular’ badge with text, just the jaguars face without the circular badge)
Electropolishing is not electro-plating or chrome plating (both electro-plating & chrome plating actually deposit a coating on the surface of the metal, but as you probably know coatings or platings can be chipped off)
Electropolishing is electro-plating in reverse. Instead of depositing a coating of another material on a surface, the action of electropolishing is to remove a surface layer, typically 20-40 micro-metres in depth in the case of stainless steel. The result is that the electropolished stainless steel surfaces become bright and highly reflective. This results from the removal of an often contaminated surface layer and the electrochemical action of micro-smoothing. The advantageous features resulting from such a bright and smooth surface are many. The passive oxide layer, which is essential to prevent stainless steel from corroding, cannot be improved upon following electropolishing. By reducing the total surface area, a result of micro-smoothing, particles and contamination are less likely to adhere to an electropolished finish. After electropolishing the surface if the stainless steel can be cleaned and kept clean more easily. The highly reflective bright finish is ideally suitable to exterior vehicle trim & grilles.
Go on........Give your Jag the face-lift it deserves.
Here are the comments from a couple of our customers recently:
"Many thanks for your splendid service and next day delivery of my grille insert. I fitted the item same day and I have to say the result is just fantastic, what a difference when compared to the boring original black fins. The fitting instructions are very comprehensive and I had no problems in doing the work myself ( at 71 years of age !!!). I will recommend your product to other Jag owners, what a saving when compared to a new replacement grille assembly at anything up to £229 !!!!" Kind Regards & thank you. Chris J Chafe.

"I got my grille insert earlier this week and with the weather holding out today, decided to fit it........It wasnt a job I would have normally tackled myself but the instructions and photos are superb and explain everything perfect and 1 hour later the job was done and the Jag looks superb, much better with the horrible plastic grilles removed and the stainless mesh in place, anyway I am sending a photo that you may use to your advantage and you may also use this email too. VERY HAPPY!" Peter Wilkinson. (Scunthorpe)
